PROJECT LOCATION
The Project is based in Muizenberg, only 30 minutes from Cape Town City Centre.  Muizenberg beach is one of Cape Town’s most magnificent, Pristine white beaches, and is renowned for the most consistent waves in Cape Town. The Project is based next to the beach in a Surf Outreach Building. This building is fully equipped to cater for all the children's needs: Surfing, Soccer, Education, African Drumming, Library, Literacy and Sports Gear.  We are based in the Muizenberg Sea side Village close to: shops and internet access (free wi-fi at many restaurants close to the surfing outreach). We teach Life skills, Surfing and Educational Programs to Many Less Privileged children from Capricorn Township who come to the Project from just 15 minutes away from Muizenberg. These children have a great need for one on one attention.  They come from very less Privileged back grounds. Some of the Children are Orphans and others live with their relatives.  Our aim is to add HOPE AND LOVE into their lives.  We aim to Improve the Children's Education levels at School through creating a sports platform for the children to attend in the afternoons (once they have completed their Home work at our Centre).  

At the Outreach Program, we assist the children with their home work, reading, learning to write English and read english, Praying with them and teaching them to surf.  We use Surfing as a reward for the children once they have completed their home work each day.  As a volunteer, we really need your help with Praying with the children, assisting them with their home work and Sharing Jesus Love with them.  Our Hearts are to Impact children's lives and see their lives restored, bringing Hope and Practical answers to the children and their Families.  Our Aim is to see the children and Youth come into a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. We would love for you to Join in on this vision.  The Street children's Surfing Project was founded by Mandy Weschta in 2007, since then Many surf schools started teaching the less Privileged children to Surf in Muizenberg.  We are so happy that so many children are having the opportunity to Surf their way to Success. As a volunteer you will have the chance to surf with the children in the water and also learn to surf at the same time. (encouraging them in the water whilst you surf with them).
